30th Anniversary Seminar
Great photo by Alon Koppel from our 30th Anniversary seminar with Konigsberg Sensei! Thanks to everyone for making it such a success – we all enjoyed 2 days of inspiring classes!
Aikido was created in the early 20th century by Morihei Ueshiba Sensei. Considered to be the top martial artist in Japan at the time, Morihei Sensei was also a spiritual leader and visionary.
Harvey Konigsberg Sensei
7th Dan Shihan, Chief Instructor Woodstock Aikido
In 1965, Harvey Konigsberg, a promising young boxer at the time, attended an Aikido demonstration by Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei and Koichi Tohei Sensei. This soon compelled him to begin his training in Aikido, and by 1970 he was already teaching at the New York Aikikai, the Aikido headquarters of the USA.
